I don’t know where to start…. Luke is amazing he saved my life he picked me up when I was rock bottom and has got me to where I am today completing the 12 week program and unchaining myself from my addiction. The tools I have learnt over the past 12 weeks have made me the person I am now, these tools I have learnt will stick with me through life and help me in day to day life. Luke made me realise that life is amazing, he saved my relationship with my partner and my family, he is so supportive and in every single attribute, his attention to detail in every session is amazing. Luke once again Thank you!

Luke has been amazing. He was exactly what I was looking for in a therapist, someone that I could talk openly with and on the same level. Sometimes we would work through exercises and other times we would just chat about what was going on. I have not had a drink in 4 months and with a bit of hard work from myself and awesome support from Luke here's to the next 4 and many more after 🙂

If i could leave a 100 star review for Luke I would, he has been amazing from day 1. He listens intently and without prejudice, the skills he has taught me over the time I have worked with him will be with me for a lifetime and I will be forever thankful that I found him when I needed it the most. Thank you so much for everything.

I came to Luke and Lisa Inside Addiction, after trying other therapies (1:1 and group). This was the first time I actually felt like the therapist was engaged in my own personal feelings and experiences while offering pragmatic ways of dealing with addition and the factors behind it. I write this review, just under 7 months clean and feel stronger and with the most will power I have ever experienced. I truly believe that Luke has done something different which has actually worked. He is a really nice, calm and personable guy. There is no awkwardness. I cannot recommend him enough.

RichardFrom Trustpilot

Working with Luke has been genuinely life-changing for me. He has provided patient, actionable and supportive counsel during the darkest period of my entire life and within months has enabled me to take real action to make positive, habitual changes. Previous experiences with counselling had been negative, but working with Luke has been fundamentally different and more helpful to me. I believe that Luke's experiences, alongside his qualifications, make him a truly exceptional counsellor and I would recommend his support to anybody who felt they needed it.

I went through the same struggles you’re going through right now…

From an emotionally dead drug addict to a fulfilled recovery counsellor without losing my job, family or going to rehab.

I now have a counselling degree, a BACP membership, gone through therapy, read over 150 books, worked in multiple rehabs, been to countless Al-Anon and NA meetings and spent years in recovery growing to become my best self.

But this hasn’t always been the case…

I grew up with a drug-addicted mum who died when I was 10.

Every day I emotionally ran from the trauma, ripping out everything that connected my head to my heart, burying any feelings deep in the valley of my soul never to be found again.

Until one day….

Click to continue reading.

Until one day I hit rock bottom when I realised I was a drug addict heading towards death just like my mum. In that moment I made a commitment to become the best version of myself and lead others by example.

But walking into my first therapy session I really believed I could die from bringing back up the pain I carried.

I had suppressed so much of my emotions I did not know what I would find and that scared the hell out of me!

I quickly had to develop the courage needed to embrace the uncertainty and anxiety of this journey of self-discovery. 

As the days turned into months I read over 100 books on the mind to learn the psychoeducational information I needed to upgrade my thinking.

I studied mindfulness and meditated every day so I could get a deeper understanding of my cognitive thought patterns and the impact those thoughts had on my behaviour. 

I watched countless podcasts, mentors on YouTube and attended multiple personal development seminars to get all the practical tools I needed to thrive in daily life. 

But I didn’t stop there because I kept going back to therapy to untangle the mess of my emotions. 

It was there I started to understand the impact of mum’s actions on my traumatic development and how my broken inner child was living inside me as an adult. I gained an understanding of the ripples of addiction throughout my life and how they affected every subconscious decision I made.

As I started to heal, the months turned into years and I saw a pattern emerging. When I looked back at my journey I had developed four main skills. 

I had learnt to observe and sit with my thoughts and cultivate better relationships with myself and others. I discovered how to deal with very emotionally intense events and situations. Lastly, I persevered to regulate my emotions on a daily basis. 

So when I went into training to become a counsellor and discovered Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) which covers these exact four areas (mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance, emotional regulations), a huge lightbulb went off. 

I thought, “I wish I had this when I started,” because it would have compressed all the years spent going the long way round into weeks. 

I was so fascinated I studied DBT on top of my degree so I could become a specialist. 

As I started to crystallise my skills I decided to custom build this program based on everything I had learned to help people just like you. 

I have now led a range of clients through this program from people drinking too much at the weekend to clients doing multiple grams of cocaine a day.
